Emma Watson admits she may give up her acting career

Wednesday June 24, 2009

Harry Potter actress Emma Watson has revealed she no longer has a "burning passion" for acting - and she may give up her silver screen career once she's finished playing Hermione Granger in the boy wizard films.

"Unless something comes along that I feel as strongly about as I did Hermione – like, I felt it was life or death – I don't want to act again," the 19-year-old told a US magazine.

The pretty actress went on to admit she is exhausted by the full on schedule required to promote July-released Harry Potter And The Half Blood Prince – while filming the final two instalments.  

"I don't think I've ever been this tired in my life," Paris-born Emma said. "I literally wear my pyjama bottoms to set. I roll out of bed and put on a hoodie and some Ugg boots."

Not that her casual appearance is affecting her love life. She also confirmed she is still dating 25-year-old financier Jay Barrymore, despite reports of a split.

 While there is no doubt a career awaiting her in the fashion world, which has welcomed her with open arms, the grounded star will be heading off to university this autumn. But she refuses to reveal which one she'll be attanding.

"I just want to keep it private for as long as I can," she told Teen Vogue. "I probably sound like a paranoid nut, but I'm doing this because I want to be normal. I really want anonymity."
